This year the mighty Lovebox Festival celebrated a decade of love! After days of torrential rain and what was set to be a rather damp and dull day for Bangthebox on Friday; the heavens remained closed, the rain mac firmly packed away, and despite some hefty mud swamps, the day was glorious and the festival as expected was excellent.
Arriving just after 2:30 to hoards of early birds at the festival gates; it took a while to get past security and there wasn’t a great deal happening at this time around the festival. If you head there next year, give the festival a few hours to warm up. When it does all kick off, there is a lot to see and do at Lovebox. Given we arrived so early, we didn’t expect to leave having only seen a few acts. But after several ciders, much roaming, and several clashes with the main acts this was the case. We did however see Ms Dynamite, Magnetic Man, Roska and Stamina…3 minutes of SubFocus and 10 minutes of Plastician… Not bad really. Ms Dynamite was pure class, and Katy B made a surprise appearance, joining Skream, Artwork and Benga on stage to perform ’Perfect Stranger’ which was a highlight of the day! At 2:40 in the ’I Need Air’ video England score-great moment! For £30 this was a top-notch day festival, and one I would recommend to all lovers of good music!
